syria and i said to him if as you say your nation has nothing to hide, then let the united nations in immediately and give the inspectors the unfettered access so that they have the opportunity to tell your story. instead for four days, they shelled the neighborhood in order to destroy evidence, and bombarding block after block at a rate four times higher than they had over the previous ten days and when the un inspectors finally gained access, that access, as we now know was restricted and controlled. in all of these things that i have listed, in all of these things that we know, all of them, the american intelligence community has high confidence, high confidence this is common sense. this is evidence. these are facts. so the primary question is really no longer what do we know, the question is what are we in the world going to do about it. as previous storms in history have gathered with unspeakable crimes within our power to stop them, we're in more about temptations of looking the other way. history is full of leaders who were warned against inaction or difference and especially

does not need congress to authorize a strike on syria. if assad's use of chemical weapons against civilians deserves a military response, and i believe it does, and if the president is seeking congressional approval, then he should call congress back into special session at the earliest date. the president doesn't need 535 members of congress to enforce his own red line. you totally disagree with peter king. tell our viewers quickly, because we're out of time, congressman rangel, why he's wrong and you're right. >> peter king i thought was on the right track when he said the president should call back the congress. but this whole idea that he doesn't need 535 -- at least i hope he's saying we need the majority. to an extent of what his belief is, it's 135th of the united states congress. so i respect him or anybody else who believes the president is authorized to attack another country without congressional approval. i am with him in terms of the congress should be given a right to vote, and we should have a national draft to make certain that everybody has skin in the game when w
